Garden Perspectives - Cooper's Ice Plant

Cooper's Ice Plant has turned into one of my most favorite ground cover perennials.  

A few years ago, I planted several of these in my front garden.  I wanted to add some color to the front section that would bloom after the spring flowers are gone and start before my purple cones flowers did.  These were the perfect choice.  I noticed this season, they've added quite a few color selections, white, yellow, multi-, and orange- to name a few. 

The maintenance has been fairly easy- plant and let it go.  One tip, when plant be sure to pull all the grass and weeds around or near the plant.  Maybe place some newspaper to prevent grass and weeds from growing.  This will make it easier to maintain in the long run.
